college students that revolutionized how we communicate. and i hope that the next great application will come from the hearts and minds of some of the young folks in this room or maybe the next new piece of technology, which will revolutionize how we speak to each other, not just here locally but globally, or come from some great mind right here in this room, this institution. i am very excited to be here. thank you, michael stott, for your contribution to the students, and i also consider this to be an investment, so we have to make good on their return that our community is investing in us. so i am here, and i applaud you. thank you very much.
